Dracunculus insignis (Leidy, 1858) and larval Eustrongylides sp. in a muskrat from Ontario, Canada



Dracunculus insignis (Leidy, 1858) and larval Eustrongylides sp. in a muskrat from Ontario, Canada



Canadian Journal of Zoology 50(6): 897-900



Fourteen females of Dracunculus insignis were found subcutaneously in a muskrat (Ondatra zibethica) taken in north-central Ontario, Canada. 7 males were also recovered and are described as this is the first record of males being found in this host. The morphology of the male worms is compared with previous descriptions of both D. insignis and D. medinensis. 25 larvae of Eustrongylides sp. were found coiled in connective tissue cysts in the superficial body musculature.
